Mandatory COVID certificate for candidates taking an exam at our Perarson Vue Testcenter Select

We aim at creating an optional testing environment and are following the rules of the Swiss Government as well (exams are regarded as events). Therefore from 27 September 2021 onward we will require all guests and candidates visiting our testcenter to provide a valid COVID-19 certificate.

Switzerland is participating in the EU digital COVID certificate scheme, a widely-recognized format that can be presented in digital or paper format.  


How long is the COVID certificate valid?
The validity period varies according to whether your COVID certificate documents a vaccination, recovery from COVID-19 or a negative test. The validity may be adjusted on the basis of new scientific data.

Important: The following information is valid in Switzerland. Other countries may specify different periods of validity.

For people who have been vaccinated
365 days from when the last vaccine dose was administered

For people who have recovered from COVID
The certificate is valid from the 11th day after the positive test result and lasts for 180 days from the date of the test result.

For people who have tested negative
PCR test: 72 hours from when the sample was taken
Rapid antigen test: 24 hours from when the sample was taken


In public spaces (e.g. hallways, waiting area), masks must still be worn.
